Now accepting applications for 2017-2018 Kress GLAM Cross-Pollinator grants

Earlier this year, the DLF announced that it would once again be offering its GLAM Cross-Pollinator Fellowships, thanks to a generous grant from the Kress Foundation and partnerships with AIC (the American Institute for Conservation), ARLIS/NA (Art Libraries Society of North America), MCN (Museum Computer Network), and VRA (Visual Resources Association).

In August, four fellows were selected to represent these partnering organizations at the DLF Forum (October 23-25 in Pittsburgh PA). Now, DLF-affiliated individuals may apply to attend the conferences of the Cross-Pollinator partner organizations.

Eligibility & Selections

To be eligible for an award to attend the AIC, ARLIS/NA, MCN, or VRA annual meetings, an applicant must be affiliated with a DLF member organization. Successful candidates will demonstrate a commitment to advancing research, learning, social justice, and/or the common good through the creation and/or use of digital library and museum technologies.

Award winners will be selected by CLIR/DLF staff in consultation with our Scholarships Committee, and subject to approval by the Samuel H. Kress Foundation. You may apply for multiple awards, but preference will be given to applicants who have not yet been a DLF/GLAM Cross-Pollinator Fellow.

Rolling Deadlines & Application Form

Applicants are asked to draft a personal statement of fewer than 500 words, to provide a link to a current résumé, vita, or professional profile online, and to certify that they have discussed the opportunity with a supervisor, explored additional means of support, and determined that full funding for attendance would not otherwise be available.

  • MCN (7-10 November 2017): deadline October 16 EXTENDED TO OCTOBER 18
  • ARLIS/NA: (25 February- 1 March 2018): deadline 17 November
  • VRA (27-30 March 2018): deadline 8 January
  • AIC (29 May-2 June 2018): deadline 5 March
